TENETS OF FAITH

 

N.C.M.I. TRAINING CENTER ACCEPTS THE SCRIPTURES AS THE REVEALED WORD OF GOD AND AS OUR FINAL AUTHORITY, IN THIS LIFE, AND THE WORLD TO COME. THESE ARE THE FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS AND DOCTRINE.

 

1. THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD AND THE REVEALED WORD OF GOD (2TIM 3:15-17, ALSO HEBREWS 4:12)

 

2. THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GODHEAD WHICH IS COMPRISED OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST. ALL ARE CO-EQUAL AND CO-ETERNAL. (MAT 28:19 AND JN. 1:1, 14)

 

3. MAN WAS CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. MAN, BY VOLUNTARY TRANSGRESSION FELL AND HIS ONLY HOPE OF REDEMPTION IS IN JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS THE SON OF GOD. (GEN.1:26-31, 3:1-7, AND ROM.5:12-21)

 

4. THE SALVATION OF MAN

A. MAN'S ONLY HOPE OF REDEMPTION IS THROUGH THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. ON THE CROSS, JESUS CHRIST BECAME SIN AND SICKNESS FOR US, PROVIDING SALVATION AND HEALING FOR ALL OF MANKIND. (JOHN3:16, 2 COR. 5:21) THIS SALVATION COMES ONLY BY BELIEVING IN YOUR HEART AND SAYING WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD AND THAT JESUS IS LORD. (ROM.3:24, 10:8-10, EPH 2:8)

B. THE INWARD EVIDENCE TO THE BELIEVER IS THE DIRECT WITNESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. (ROM.6:16) THE OUTWARD EVIDENCE TO ALL MEN IS A LIFE OF TRUE HOLINESS AND LOVE. (1 JOHN3:23,  1 JOHN 5:24, AND JOHN 13:35)

C. SALVATION IS BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST AND NOT BY HUMAN WORKS; HOWEVER OUR WORKS ARE EVIDENCE OF OUR FAITH AND WILL DETERMINE OUR REWARDS IN ETERNITY. (ROM.1O: 9 &10, 14:10-12, 2COR.5:10, EPH, 2:8&9, AND TITUS 3:5-7)

 

5. BAPTISM IN WATER IS A DECLARATION TO THE WORLD THAT A BELIEVER HAS DIED WITH CHRIST AND THAT THEY HAVE RAISED WITH HIM INTO NEWNESS OF LIFE. (MATH.28:19, ACTS 10:47, AND ROM. 6:4)

 

6.

THE CELEBRATION OF THE LORD'S SUPPER BY EATING OF THE BREAD AND DRINKING OF THE CUP IS A REMEMBRANCE OF JESUS. 1 COR. 11:24-30)

 

7. ALL BELIEVERS ARE ENTITLED TO, AND SHOULD ARDENTLY EXPECT AND EARNESTLY SEEK, THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHICH IS THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER. IT WAS A COMMANDMENT OF JESUS CHRIST.  WITH THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST COMES AN ENDOWMENT OF POWER FOR LIFE AND SERVICE, THE BESTOWAL OF GIFTS AND THEIR USES IN THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY.  THIS EXPERIENCE IS SUBSEQUENT TO SALVATION, THE NEW BIRTH. (LUKE 24:49, ACTS 1:4-8, 2:38&39, ACTS  10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9, 1 COR.12:1-31).:

 

8. WE BELIEVE THAT THE INITIAL EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE PHYSICAL SIGN OF SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES THE UTTERANCE. (ACTS 1:8, 2:4, ACTS 10:44-46, AND ACTS 19: 2&6)

 

9. WE BELIEVE THAT THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST AND THAT EACH BELIEVER IS AN INTEGRAL PART. (EPH.1:22, EPH.2:19-22 AND HEB.12:23). BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID BY THE SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD AT CALVARY, WE BELIEVE THAT EACH AND EVERY BELIEVER IS ENTITLED TO:

A. TOTAL PROSPERITY  &  FINANCIAL BLESSING   (3JOHN 2, LUKE 6:38, & GAL.3:13, PHIL.4:19, 2COR. 9:6-10)

B. SPIRITUAL BLESSING   ( EPH.1:1-14, 2 COR.5:17)

C. MENTAL BLESSING   ( ROM. 12:3. ISAIH 26:3)

D. PHYSICAL BLESSING (:IS.53:4&5,  MATH. 8:17, & 1 PETER 2:24)

E. SOCIAL BLESSING  (PROVERBS 3:4, 2TIM.1:7, IJOHN 4:7-8)

 

10. WE BELIEVE IN THE BLESSED HOPE OF HIS APPEARING WHEN JESUS WILL GATHER ALL OF HIS SAINTS TO HEAVEN, THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH. (1COR.15:51&52, 1THES. 4:16-17, 2THES.2:1)

 

11.

WE BELIEVE THAT THOSE WHO HAVE NOT ACCEPTED THE REDEMPTIVE WORK OF JESUS CHRIST WILL SUFFER ETERNAL DAMNATION AND SEPARATION FROM GOD AND WILL BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ALL ETERNITY. (REV.19:20, REV. 20:10-15).

 

12. WE BELIEVE IN THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST, WHICH IS THE RETURN OF JESUS TO THE EARTH TO RULE AND REIGN FOR A THOUSAND YEARS ON THE EARTH AS THE SCRIPTURE PROMISED.

( ROM.11:25&27, 2THES.1:7, REV.19:11-16, REV. 20:1-7) AND AFTER THIS, THERE WILL BE A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH. (REV.21)
